Oh Rama

00:00:03--> 00:00:03

Rama

00:00:04--> 00:00:08

Murthy. Merci. Welcome Rama,

00:00:09--> 00:00:10

Rama.

00:00:12--> 00:01:05

Brothers and sisters, what am I talking about when I say that our very first parents, Adam and Hawa were evicted from the garden of paradise, because of it. The inner flames of desires are found because of it. Wealth is sought at any expense in order to satisfy it, diseases flourish, because of what is put inside of it. What am I talking about? Introducing the human stomach in a hadith, which is to be remembered and shared around the dinner table, at the sunset of each evening of Ramadan when we are breaking our fast are the words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said Lamola the minion we are unsure Ron min Bucklin. There is no vessel. That man feels more terribly

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

than his belly. He said, Because we believe

00:01:09--> 00:01:46

I can act in your goodness, several morsels of food, in order to keep your back straight, should be sufficient for him. And then he said for incarna now Mahana, for Sunita AMI, he was Tony Sharabi. He was only enough so he but if he insists on eating more than he used to dedicate a third of his body for food and a third for drink and a third for breathing. I mean, I have a friend of mine, who told me that he doesn't feel like he has properly eaten if he's still able to move afterwards, so hang Allah. Until this day, I still remember a case where a brother was invited to an all out

00:01:47--> 00:02:37

eating buffet of some sort, all you can eat. And he ate so much that he actually needed a team of paramedics to carry him out of the restaurant, on a stretcher. Amusing maybe, but to Abuja, Hiva. It wasn't very amusing. Abu Hanifa is the name of a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who narrated that the messenger Alayhi salaatu wa salaam said in Accra Nursey shibang feed dunya axon Jehan yo multi. Those people whose bellies are fullest today will be the hungriest on the day of judgment and after hearing this hadith, Abu Hanifa did not eat to his field till the day he died. And so halloumi we wonder why our eyes struggled to shed tears in Allah's thought.

00:02:38--> 00:03:22

Why those evening prayers of Ramadan seems so long and heavy and burdensome. Why our hearts at times feel so rough and hard. Why our enthusiasm to set visions and to create strategies for our hereafter in this month is so weak and lazy. One of the main reasons is that our attention is so obsessively focused on our bellies. Imam Muhammad was asked the question and yet you are Raju Albee recorded well who was shabbier? Can a person whose belly is always full experience a soft heart. What did Imam Muhammad say ma I don't believe it is possible.

00:03:23--> 00:03:28

And similarly, look man al Hakim, he said to his son advising him he said my son

00:03:29--> 00:03:46

either Metalla Atilla Ada, no but INFICON wa horas et al hikma, WA that Alaba Eva, my sun. When a person's belly is full. His thoughts are put to sleep. His wisdom is silenced and his drive to worship Allah is paralyzed.

00:03:48--> 00:04:25

Perhaps it's worth noting here that scientists say that the organ in the human body that is the quickest or the fastest to decompose after death is the stomach. Despite this, one of the main reasons why we as human beings crossed the lines of Allah Almighty financially socially underlyings is to serve that exact same organ the stomach surely it's not wise therefore to limit your potential in Ramadan and maybe limit your potential in the hereafter to serve an organ that will be the very first to bid you farewell. Oh Rama

00:04:27--> 00:04:28

Rama

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

Merci, merci. Welcome Rama

00:04:33--> 00:04:34
